Dear People I Correspond with Via Email,
Please stop using those “I’m out of the office until Wednesday July 2” notifications. I’m not your mom, so I don’t need to know exactly where you are and I really don’t care.
You’re a swell person and you probably are on Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed, ABW or some derivative, so I know enough about you.
If it’s urgent, I’ll try your cell or just google your name and get your number. If it’s not urgent, it probably would take you a few hours or even 24 to get back to me. Otherwise, that “I’m out of town until tomorrow” email I get back just wastes everyone time.
